requires a significant amount of luggage. Especially when more than two people are traveling in one car and the more suitcases fit in the trunk, the cargo space can begin to shrink at an alarming rate. Planning is very important when packing your luggage.
On a piece of paper, it’s worth making a list of the things we really need on the trip. Let’s not take anything else with the assumption that it might come in handy. It’s almost always useless, takes up space in the car and is annoying when we have to move unnecessary things, for example, when packing for the next leg of the journey.
It is worth remembering that large suitcases are not the best way to carry your luggage. We will use space in a more optimal way if we pack some items in soft travel bags or even carry bags that adapt to the cargo space.
It is also worth remembering that many cars have additional compartments under the boot floor or in its side walls – they can accommodate items that you plan to use only for their intended purpose.
Prepare accordingly! When packing your luggage, try to anticipate when you will need it. If during the trip we want to stop, during which we boil water for tea or a hot lunch, we will pack the burner and the gas cylinder for it, so that these items are as accessible as possible – this way we will avoid breaking through the entire contents of the trunk.
For safety reasons, place your heaviest items low and as close to the rear seat back as possible. In this way, we will limit their influence on the position of the vehicle’s center of gravity and at the same time prevent them from moving during heavy braking. Packing in soft bags is also a good solution. It is much easier to pack than hard and large suitcases. This will limit the amount of unused space.
